Kaplan Hecker & Fink is proud to share partner Joshua Matz's recent interview with Law360 for his recognition as a 2022 Appellate Rising Star. Law360 honored Joshua for his appellate work, including representing Governor Andy Beshear in successfully defending the Governor’s COVID-19 public health easures at the Supreme Court, a case that “was literally life and death”.

"I love that set of challenges. I love helping clients think through and represent their cases before appellate courts, but part of what I love, too, is thinking how appellate litigation and appellate strategy is part of a much bigger picture.
